If you are only using your ice cube trays to make ice, you need to put them to work! Yesterday I spent the morning over at Good Morning Washington to share my favorite ice cube tray hacks. Since live news can be so unpredictable, breaking news unfolded and part of my segment was cut! However, I’ve got the video of the segment and a few pictures and the details for the ideas that I didn’t get to share. I love spending my morning over at GMW, and I’ll let you know when I’ll be back!
Freeze Veggies: If you’ve got kiddos that refuse to eat their veggies, make veggie cubes! Buy vegetables like spinach and kale in bulk, chop them up, and place them in ice cube trays with hot water. The hot water will blanch the veggies so they keep their color and healthy nutrients. Freeze the cubes and when you are cooking, toss a few cubes into things like soups, sauce, or smoothies. Or when you bake, add a few veggie cubes to muffins for a sweet but healthy treat!
Seed Bombs– I’m not a fan of Easter grass but here’s a fun way to re-purpose that messy grass. Using paper grass–or colorful construction paper- cut or tear into small chunks and soak in a bowl of water for 15 minutes. Then pop it into the food processor to make a pulp. Push the pulp into ice cube trays–I used a fun heart shaped tray- and add a packet of seeds. Top off with more pulp and let it dry for 24 hours. Let your kids put the seed bombs into a garden or spread in the grass. They will love watching the seed bombs bloom!
Make a New Crayon- If you are a mom, there’s a good chance you have a few broken crayons in your bag and probably all over your house, too. So take those broken crayons and use them to make new and fun shaped crayons. Start by taking the paper off the crayons– soaking in hot, soapy water helps to make this process faster. Then break up the crayons and place them in a silicone ice cube tray. Fill the tray to the top because the wax shrinks when it melts. Then pop in the oven at 200 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Let the crayon cool completely before taking it out the mold. When it’s all done, you’ll have a giant crayon that colors every color of the rainbow. So much fun!
